Regional Contests & Grants

The Los Angeles region honors and promotes the work of its writers and illustrators by offering several annual contests. Entry is free. Competing can help you gauge the level of your work and winning can help move you toward publication.

SCBWI-L.A. may introduce new contests and/or change existing contests at any time. We are still working out contest dates for 2021. Currently, the region offers the following:

Writers Contest

Illustrators Contest

Mentor Contest

Sue Alexander Grant

C. Harrington Scholarship

SCBWI Los Angeles Region Twitter Banner Contest

First-place winning manuscripts in any SCBWI-L.A. contest may not be entered in any subsequent SCBWI-L.A. contest.
